Coachella 2019: Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, & Childish Gambino Reportedly Headlining

Published: Monday 1st Oct 2018 by Sam

How does one follow-up the slayage that was Beyonce’s BeyChella?

For the organizers of Coachella 2019, it seems the answer lies in tapping some of music’s most polarizing names to headline next year’s bill.

Details below…

Sources close to Hits Daily Double reveal that Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, and Childish Gambino will top the 2019 roster.

Set to take place April 12th-14th and April 19th-21st in Indio, California, the trio’s respective slots would see Gambino (who last performed at the festival in 2012) up first on Friday, followed by JT on Saturday, and Yeezy on Sunday. It’ll mark West’s third slot at Coachella, following a performance in 2006 and headline spot in 2011.

Now, it’s worth stressing that the official announcement isn’t made until January. But much like the Super Bowl, when sources like this “surface” they almost always hold true.

The timing is apt too.

Despite professionally trolling with release dates, Kanye is releasing an album sometime soon, Timberlake is confirmed to be working on new material, and Gambino has the follow-up to ‘Awaken, My Love’ due imminently. The two latter acts have also been building up their live momentum this year with the ‘Man Of The Woods Tour’ and ‘This Is America Tour’ respectively.

**************

Surely we’re not the only ones a lil “meh” about this? BeyChella was always going to be a tough act to top, but this just feels blah.

Kanye is exhausting to even think about these days and Justin has been consistent in his ability to leave everything desired (see: Super Bowl).

In any case, there’s always the undercard.

    Sorry but not interested, especially since all Kanye is going to do is go on a tirent rant for his entire time to perform and as of late his music sucks??

    Wow… I hope not because I have seen Kanye and Justin timberlake live and I def don’t need to see JT again after seeing him this year. Glad I didn’t buy passes already! 2018 was great. I lucked out ha ha! Beyonce, Eminem! Can’t go wrong even The Weeknd wasn’t a bad act for it since it’s basically his roots.

    I don’t care to see Gambino live tbh. Can’t stand “This Is America.” Sounds like noise to me. “3005” is cool though.

    Saw Kanye in 2014 I believe and thank god before even more of his crazy and rants. His new music is trash. Honestly aside from “Monster” and “All Of The Lights” his only good music came out before 2008!
